Encinitas, CA (Vocus) November 19, 2010
The holiday classic is now available on the App Store for an introductory price of only $2.99. This universal app can be used on the iPad and iPhone for no additional charge and includes special high-resolution graphics for Retina displays.
Rudolph delivers the message that there are no misfits in life, for everyone has a special quality to share. As the story opens, Rudolph is outcast for his shiny red nose. All the other reindeer make fun of him and won’t let him play in their reindeer games. But when Christmas is almost cancelled because of a huge snowstorm, Rudolph comes to Santa's rescue. His glowing nose lights the way, enabling Santa to deliver toys to all the little girls and boys!
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer digital book includes background music and audio, enlarged artwork for each scene, and even audio clips from the timeless TV special!
To promote reading in young children, individual words are highlighted as the story is read. Word associations, professional narration and animated effects—like snow and Rudolph’s glowing nose—keep children engaged in the reading experience. By combining the original text and beautiful artwork with features that entertain and promote reading, this digital book appeals to readers of all ages.
“This timeless story has become an integral part of Christmas tradition,” said Jonathan Flom of Character Arts, LLC. “We are excited to make the Rudolph story available to today’s generation of kids and are thrilled by the quality experience that Oceanhouse Media’s apps provide.”
